Our network now reaches 200,000 people, across 39 countries, in more than 40 schools, two universities, and vocational training programs. We provide a combination of high-level science and technology education with strengthened Jewish identity, bridging the gap between ability and opportunity – and ensuring the continuity of Jewish life worldwide.
